Wed Jan 13 2016 (Updated 01/25/16)Martin Luther King Jr's Radical Legacy Lives On
Wed Jan 13 2016 (Updated 01/25/16)Bay Area Holds 96 Hours of Action as Part of Nat'l Call to “Reclaim King’s Radical Legacy”
The Anti Police-Terror Project (APTP) writes: Over the last year, in the Bay Area alone, there have been dozens of police murders. In San Francisco, we have most recently seen the brutal execution of Mario Woods, in addition to police beating a disabled man in front of the Twitter building and racist text messages exchanged between SFPD on-duty officers. In Oakland, we have seen a string of Black men murdered by police since only June of 2015. In fact, a recent graphic by Mapping Police Violence shows that in 2015, Oakland ranks third in police killings per million people in 60 of America's largest cities.
APTP has called for the Second Annual 96 Hours of Direct Action and Reclaiming King’s Radical Legacy March. For four days, hundreds of community members from over two dozen groups in both Oakland and San Francisco will unleash a spectrum of disruptive and creative activity. In the spirit of MLK, these actions will meaningfully interrupt business as usual whether that be with direct action, teach-ins, concerts or prayer vigils.
Demands include: The resignation of Mayor Libby Schaaf; The immediate termination of Chief Sean Whent; The immediate termination of Chief Greg Suhr; The immediate termination of the officers involved in the murders of Richard Perkins, Mario Woods, Yuvette Henderson, Amilcar Lopez, Alex Nieto, Demouriah Hogg and Richard Linyard; Respect our Sanctuary Cities. ICE Out Oakland and San Francisco! No deportations! No Arrests!; and The immediate reallocation of city budgets: reduce police budgets and reallocate those funds to provide for affordable housing that allows Black, Brown and other people of color to remain in San Francisco and Oakland.
